From The Holy Spirit Catholic MAC

On Saturday 15 June The Holy Spirit MAC (Multi Academy Company) celebrated the 50th anniversary of two of our wonderful schools: Our Lady and St Joseph Catholic Academy and St Thomas More Catholic Academy and Sixth Form College. 

The Golden Jubilee was a remarkable event that brought together past and present members of our community to honour five decades of faith formation and learning.

The day commenced with a beautiful Mass at Our Lady of the Angel Church, celebrated by Archbishop Bernard Longley. The church was filled to capacity with friends, former and current staff from both schools, students and local parishioners. 

Archbishop Bernard paid fitting tribute to the schools' legacy and the continued contribution they make to Catholic education in North Warwickshire.

Following Mass, guests were given a guided tour of St Thomas More Catholic Academy. The tour offered a glimpse into the changes in school life over the years and highlighted progress and growth by showcasing the newly developed and enhanced classrooms, laboratories and recreational areas.

The day concluded with a hog roast, where old friends reconnected. The atmosphere was one of camaraderie, reflecting the strong sense of community that has always been a hallmark of our schools. 

The 50th celebrations were a testament to the dedication and hard work of everyone involved in the life of Our Lady and St Joseph Catholic Academy and St Thomas More Catholic Academy and Sixth Form College. It was a day filled with gratitude for the past, celebration of the present and hope for the future.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to Archbishop Bernard for truly making it an event to remember. Thanks too to the staff and volunteers whose meticulous organisation made the event what it was and to all those who attended and made the day so special. 

Here’s to the next 50 years!
